Our Much-Anticipated Date Night WITHOUT the Kids!!!


Tanner is now 3 months old!!! Andy & I hadn't gotten a chance to go to eat out without the kids since Tanner was born. My parents took the older 2 kids to sleep over night, and neighbor friends kept Tanner for a few hours (Momma wasn't quite ready to send him overnight yet!!!!!!!)
As you can see, Tanner got a lot of attention, making it easy for momma to drop him off for a while. Andy & I had the BEST TIME EVER- eating Thai food at Siam is a HUGE treat for us spicey-food lovers!!!!
I don't know when our next date night will happen, but I will cherish this one for a long time! :)

Tanner Lee's Baby Dedication

Tanner on the screen....
During the dedication...

Our family with Our pastor, Steve Stoltzfus
We are SOOOO thankful to all of our families who came to witness Tanner's baby dedication. It was a wonderful day and my mom cooked an amazing meal for everyone to eat together after the service. It's not always easy to "return" our child back to God, but they are His anyway, and I just love the account of Hannah (in 1 Samuel) of how she prayed for a son and then dedicated him to the service of the Lord. That is my prayer today too! I sure love my sweet Tanner Lee Plank, but I know Jesus loves him MORE!

Piano Lessons (by Mommy)

Andy surprised recently with the keyboard of my dreams!!!! I have always wished to teach my own children how to play piano, so I was tickled pink to get a piano of my own!!!
Clayton has asked for quite a while to take either drum or guitar lessons. I told him that Mommy believes piano helps teach a ground knowledge for all music, and that if he took piano lessons seriously, he could take any instrument he wished in a year or two. He has been bugging me about lessons ever since I said that, and especially since his beginner lesson books arrived in the mail! :)
Tuesday nights are hit set lesson and he was an eager beaver tonight as we sat down to work through both Theory and Keyboard books. He did so well and we ended up doing two lessons (of each) in own night.
I am like a kid in a candy store seeing how excited Clayton is to learn. Sadie stood and watched questioning when it was her turn for lessons!!!
